Review...
Some Triax sessions end up with me picking and choosing the best bits, some can be released almost intact. This session I left notes "no need to remix, just remove the feedback" - actually I needed to do a bit more than that. But no remix was needed at all, just some balancing, a bit of repair and that's it!
Named after two famous Nigel Kneale stories this has to be one of the most powerful and challenging of Triax releases to date, each of the works may start innocently enough, but they reach extraordinary heights. Heavy on the electronics and guitars, and with layers of flute in "The Stone Tape" there's actually very little of Dave's usual patent hurdy-gurdy, if any - although he did play it on these sessions.
